Second-biggest city in Nevada lifts weed ban; sales could start in weeks

(Cannabist) Pot shoppers in Henderson will soon be able to legally purchase the plant for recreational use after the Henderson City Council voted Tuesday to end a moratorium that had been in place since February.

The council voted 3-to-2, with Mayor Debra March, Councilwoman Gerri Schroder and Councilman Dan Shaw voting in favor of repealing the moratorium and Councilmen John Marz and Dan Stewart voting against the measure. The vote set a path for five dispensaries in Henderson as well as over a dozen combined cultivation, testing and production facilities to begin operating in the recreational market.
